...yeah.

Had a laparascopic radical nephrectomy. They were going to do it open surgery at first but the surgeon said last minute he'd tried to do it keyhole if he could. Turned out, he could.

9cm tumour, and kidneys are tough and incompressible apparently, so a 9cm cut to maneuver it out. But he got it all out. All the cancer was confined to the bag of the kidney itself, it hadn't got into the bowel or anything, so thats good. No complications, apparently it was textbook stuff and I was a model patient. No blood transfusions or anything needed, so that'll keep the Jehovah's Witnesses happy. Anaesthetist was super excited, was showing me how big it was with his hands - "It was this big!" - like they'd caught a sea bass in there or something. A mutated and ill tempered sea bass.

Was in a lot of pain though so was given morphine, oxycodone, tramadol, all sorts of fun things. No fentanyl lollipops at least, didn't quite plumb those depths. Still in a lot of pain now and it's six days after the op. Back to the codeine and paracetamol which really doesn't do jack, but it's getting better with every day that passes now.

As it wasn't open surgery they didn't have to tear up my abdominal muscles at least, which means I can still sit up. Which means that getting out of bed isn't a complete nightmare. So, small mercies. Hopefully I'll feel a lot better this time next week.

We were all so worried and such... No prays from me, but all the best wishes... I am so happy that you are back. ;)

And now tell the Yankees how much this did cost for you. ;)

My bold emphasis above.

So you still have those 6-pack abs then. ;-)

In all seriousness, glad the surgery went well for you.

Glad to see you are doing well! Maybe we all got a lot more miles to go; only way to know is to keep going!
